Oh dear. I hadn't thought of that possibility. That is REALLY penny-pinching if that's what they're going with. I'll skip and wait for Takara.

How boring would your toy shelf look if they were all grey just to be more "screen accurate" the Bay's bots.
Then again, when Hasbro gave the Dinobot toys different colours for the TF4 toyline, people were unhappy with them having odd colours that didn't make them look like the movie Dinobots.

(also, most of the on-screen Decepticon toys since the very first movie have been fairly colourless, with the only real exception being the Constructicons... ALL the rest have been black, grey or military coloured)

I think these were shown in the second trailer. All dark grey. They follow batmans rule

Honestly, I think that it would be impossible to tell the difference between who's who if you put them all on one shelf

The colours of the Decepticons is indicative of the way that Michael Bay treats most Decepticons (and Dinobots) in the movies -- as nothing more than generic set pieces. Absolutely zero personality. They're just so forgettable. (-_-)

Apparently there is a second Bumblebee toy for wave 3 in the Deluxe size, and it is said to be a new mould... with this scan said to be from its instructions (it doesn't show much other than a gun/hand swapping gimmick).

I wonder if they'll reuse more of the dragon moulds from the BH line?

I guess Hasbro can pad out the movie line with non-movie toys (like they did with the Walmart exclusives with the first movie, and the Dinobot minicons for the fourth movie), but they just can't go the other way and use movie toys for non-movie lines.

In a thread over at seibertron (https://www.seibertron.com/transform...sqweeks/37971/) there is possibly a leak of a new DotM voyager release https://flic.kr/p/UiB7a3 from a Argos catalogue.

It has a lot of red and new weapons.

Kinda reminds me of the "revenge" optimus prime (based on rotf prime), a cheap way to reuse a mold but like the AOE bumblebee repaint it...doesn't sit well with the rest of the movie, oh well someone will snap it up.

If the colors were inverted and a chromed bumper I might of taken one LOL
